It used to be under the Parenting section on the topics page but now there's a section called Special Needs and it's been divided up into Children, Teens, Education etc. Basically you just scroll down on the topics page.

it looks like a work in progress to me, maybe tech hasn't finished it yet.

Sorry it's a balls up - we have created a new area and children is just one of the topics but for some reason the others aren't working/showing. Now BigTech's gawn - we'll try to track him down soonest...

monstermansmum Wed 10-Jun-09 18:06:29

youre right 2shoes-I emailed them and they said that they had separated the topics within SN but it wasnt working properly at the moment.

Monstermansmum - If you follow this link here to the Talk topics page ou can scroll down the list until you see Special Needs on the left-hand side. Click on the words 'Special Needs' and it should come up with the new SN topics.

where did children come from?!?!?!

(as in the topic, I know the basics )

coppertop Wed 10-Jun-09 18:08:04

Poor BigTech. He'll never be allowed out of his shed again.

Flamesparrow Wed 10-Jun-09 18:10:24

Justine - is it going to just say "children" etc all the time, or will it be "special needs children"?

A lot of people just click from active convos and won't realise it is SN stuff

how exciting though a shiney new teens topic.

bubblagirl Wed 10-Jun-09 18:30:55

oh no i have only just realised does that mean there is no special needs anymore just children as i like the crowd in special needs lol and no one will know where to go for help on special needs subjects

JustineMumsnet (MNHQ) Wed 10-Jun-09 18:35:36

You make a very fair point Flamesparrow - we're going to have to rename these topics aren't we? Double balls up! <note to self to think things through a bit more>

Flamesparrow Wed 10-Jun-09 18:36:46

If you want to employ me to work from home, then I can point out these things beforehand to make less work for you wink <waits for contract>

I like that we have our own board now, and maybe I'll fit nicely into the teen bit (for this year at least...20 in December eeek!) But I wish there was a notice on the top of the page or something, I've just panicked!
